It occurred to me over Christmas that Rob is in fact a troll . So to make sure I looked in the urban dictionary to make sure. I concluded that a lot of it is borne out.

but of course you will not be able to come up with anything that suggests that Brexit is a better idea than what is already in place :roll:

I didn't say UK banks I said European ,and they have done it and continue to make the odd effort ,its no co-incidence there were two sharp downward lurches on the pound just as Britons went on their annual Holidays in August 2017 and 2018 ,it's no conspiracy theory it's what happened
.
Its a high stakes game and involves billions of dollars ,you think people play fair ??
Sorry Herd thats just another one of your conspiracy theories. The pound is weaker because more people want to sell it and hold currencies in countries whose economies are much stronger than ours eg the US . Weak economy equals weak currency. Its quite a simple concept really.

Just to put this to bed, here is an explanation put in a much better way than I ever could and saves me the effort.

Point 6 clarifies what I am trying to get across.

Rob again you're deliberately missing the point, you cannot guarantee that the EU as organisation will remain the same over the next year, 2 years, 5 years or even 10 years. Go to the EU website, look into the documents section and read the 5 presidents report which is a blue print for the future direction of the EU.

The report details many many things for the future direction of the EU which i disagree with, this is not the same organisation that a referendum was held to join in the 1970s, it is not the same organisation which was reorganised and expanded into the EU in the early 1990s which none of us were allowed a vote on whether we wished to join or not.

Your argument about the state of the EU and our current membership of it only holds water if you can guarantee that it will not change, which you cannot do.

Stop disparaging other peoples opinions when your own opinion is predicated on an premise that we voted to leave or remain in an organisation 'as is' when it is proven that it constantly changes and therefore YOU do not know what YOU voted for either.

you Brexiteers just sound more and more ridiculous with each passing day.
constantly going on about "this might happen" or "that might happen" with regards to the EU.

I will tell you something - should we remain all your scare stories probably won't happen, we are too big an influence to let it.

are you in favour of Theresa May's Brexit deal or are you too one of these that want your own fantasy Brexit ?

I know that you all enjoy my undercover conspiracy theories but I have to ask whether Rob is a member .

Interesting use of words in her rallying cry this morning.

Theresa May urges "a new spirit of common purpose" for 2019

I am consistent with my views.
I have always said that we hold influence within the EU, but are irrelevant outside of it.

no the UK is a laughing stock across the world - you just refuse to believe it.

take this article for example.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/04/opin ... union.html

funny though how you don't believe these stories, yet swallowed all the lies from the Leave campaign.
